• Life Drawing Class

Gain an insight into the drawing techniques from a professional artist whilst putting them into practice, working directly from a life model.

You will receive tuition from professional artist Hayley Whittingham, in the form of demonstrations, and one-to-one guidance. We will warm up with some shorter, dynamic poses, focussed on capturing the proportions, movement and weight of the figure. This will be followed by a longer sustained study, exploring techniques of shading to describe form and anatomy.

The workshop is aimed at those with some drawing experience, who may want to try life drawing for the first time or build upon existing skills using traditional methods.

The class will be hosted on our spectacular Viewing Balcony overlooking our Weaving Floor.
